Research from  Center for Healthcare Science and Technology:  “Microcarbon-based facial creams activate aerial oxygen under light to reactive oxygen species damaging cell”  appeared in Applied Nanoscience (2017) DOI: 10.1007/s13204-017-0604-9 has been highlighted in Nature India 

Research from  Center for Healthcare Science and Technology:  “Microcarbon-based facial creams activate aerial oxygen under light to reactive oxygen species damaging cell”  appeared in Applied Nanoscience (2017) DOI: 10.1007/s13204-017-0604-9 has been highlighted in Nature India as , “Microcarbon in face creams harmful” .

Nanosized reduced graphene oxide (rGO) is found in active microcarbon used in popular face cream from the manufacturers like Ponds, Nevia, and Garnier which, under visible light exposure, gets activated by aerial oxygen to generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) harmful to skin.
